    Data.gov

    Mentioned on C-SPAN's broadcast of the FCC's "National Broadband Plan"
    The purpose of Data.gov is to increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government...If there are additional datasets that you would like to see included on this site, please click here...

    Looks like there is some interesting data there, but when I see a phrase like:
    datasets generated by the .... Federal Government
    I intinctively take a skeptical view of the data. Seriously though, this looks like a site that I will use rather frequently. Thanks for the link.

    Who knows?

    A close study of his tax records just might cause an addition to that other record.

    It's actually a serious effort, headed by a seriously capable individual.

    The good news is that it's doable, as data itself is mostly hierachica and what we call "self-relating."

    The bad news is that very few are able to do it properly, even among some of the "experts."
